Elementary: K-4

Our elementary program, both comprehensive and thorough, is designed to give students a strong start for their academic career. 

Curriculum:

Our reading program is phonics-based and stresses word attack, fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary skills.  We implement a variety of reading materials, including classic children’s literature, to achieve our goal of turning out students with excellent reading abilities.
Writing is interwoven with other language arts activities. Writing is taught to convey information, for self-expression, and as a mode for learning in other curriculum areas. Grammar and mechanics are systematically taught. Spelling and handwriting are also taught as separate subjects.
Mathematics is taught in a sequential and experiential format using Bob Jones curriculum. The emphasis is on understanding and confident performance in a wide variety of math skills.
Science and history are taught at this lower level on an introductory level, with the expectation that students will add to this knowledge base with further study. These subjects are taught through reading, dialogue, hands-on activities and projects to create an experiential platform of basic knowledge. We use A Beka curriculum for these subjects.  All students participate in a Science Fair in May, in which they prepare information boards and projects to share and explain.
Music, art, and P.E. are all taught with an emphasis on appreciation, active participation, and skill acquisition.

Spiritual Growth:

We offer opportunities for students to develop a deeper relationship with Christ through daily Chapel and Bible teaching. 

Service:

We encourage and nurture on attitude of service and giving to God’s Kingdom through activities such as our annual Penny Carnival, from which proceeds go to the Union Gospel Mission for their Thanksgiving Meal and Operation Christmas Child boxes that go overseas.  We hold a local food and toy drive at Christmas, and our school sponsors a World Vision child. Our sponsored child is supported by “Mission Friday”.  One Friday per month the whole school eats Ramen noodles for lunch to save money for our sponsorship gift.
